Almost Decided

After the (initial) research, I think that the Moore formula and unschooling will definitely be okay for Ethan. Based on the many articles and posts I’ve read, I think that those moms /dads/parents that chose unschooling for their kids are very brave. I mean, I’ve been searching like mad on how to “properly” unschool Ethan, looking for tips or some ideas, but apparently I just have to let him direct me. Well, I admit, that’s a challenge, I mean, I’m so used to following a set curriculum that doing this interest-based learning is a bit well, frightening. But I know that if I want Ethan to really learn, to love learning and to reach his full potential, I have to try this.  Anyway, I’ve been looking for some of John Holt’s books as well as Raymond Moore’s for reference materials but it’s a bit difficult looking for those here.  I suppose that’s because homeschooling is still a bit new here in the Philippines.  But I already asked Ruther to get me one of Moore’s online and then the rest of the books I’ll request my brother-in-law’s wife if it’s okay for me to have the books shipped to her place. Hopefully I’ll be able to put all my research to good use but for now, I guess I’ll just have to trust Ethan.
